Planet D Nonet is a Detroit-flavored swing ensemble founded by drummer RJ Spangler and trumpeter James O’Donnell, both impressive players with a passion for old jazz. Their music is a tribute to pioneering musicians with a focus on innovator Sun Ra. PD9 Township Jazz Project, a permutation of the group, revels in the music of South Africa and plays the songs by Brotherhood of Breath, Abdullah Ibrahim, Hugh Masekela, Johnny Dyani and the Johannesburg Street Band. Their energetic celebration of South Africa’s jazz heritage is percussive, brassy and alive.
